Understanding Solar Battery Storage Capacity

Solar battery storage capacity is a critical factor when it comes to ensuring a consistent and uninterrupted power supply for your home. It determines how much energy your battery can store and subsequently make available during periods of low sun or load-shedding. At Soly, we provide three primary battery backup options, each with distinct storage capacities:

5.12 kW Battery Backup

Our 5kW battery backup system has a storage capacity of 5 kilowatt-hours (kWh). This means that it can store up to 5.12 kWh of solar energy for your use. However, it's important to note that not all of this stored energy is immediately usable. With a 5kW battery, you can typically expect around 4.5 kWh of usable capacity. This ensures that you have enough stored energy to power your essential appliances during outages or when the sun isn't shining.

Price information

10.65 kW Battery Backup

For those with larger residential setups or higher energy demands, our 10.65 kW battery backup offers almost double the capacity of the 5 kW system, with a storage capacity of 10.65 kWh. When it comes to usable capacity, you can typically expect around 8 kWh, ensuring an ample supply of stored energy to meet your power needs even during extended periods without sunlight.

Price information

15.97 kW Battery Backup

Our 15 kW battery backup solution is ideal for homeowners with substantial energy requirements. With a storage capacity of 15.97 kWh, this system offers significant energy reserves. However, similar to the others, not all of this stored energy is immediately usable. With a 15.97 kW battery, you can expect approximately 13 kWh of usable capacity, ensuring that you have a reliable and extended power supply during outages or on cloudy days.

Why Storage Capacity Matters

Understanding the usable capacity of your solar battery backup system is essential for making an informed decision when selecting the right system for your home. It ensures that you have a clear picture of how much energy you can rely on during power outages or when your solar panels aren’t producing at their peak. We hope these insights empower you to choose a system that aligns with your household’s energy requirements.

Whether you’re looking for a compact 5 kW system, a robust 8 kW solution, or an extensive 12 kW battery, we’re here to provide the support and expertise you need to make the right choice. With Soly, you can count on reliable, eco-friendly, and cost-effective solar battery storage solutions that empower your home with clean, uninterrupted power. So get in touch with us for a seamless transition.
